HOPE FOR THE FUTURE: TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION PART 2
Speaker: John Buttars, Service Leader: Paul Smith

We stand at an historic point, where reconciliation with Indigenous peoples is a path we can embrace. Join us to explore the hope of reconciliation and how we can help make it reality. John Buttars, a retired United Church Minister, will continue his reflections on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s findings, considering what it means as a settler descended Canadian to be a beneficiary of unjust policies. We will also explore some of the Commission’s 94 calls to action through contemporary Indigenous writing and music and what Unitarians can do to further reconciliation. "

 IT TAKES A "VILLAGE"...TO RAISE A GLOBAL CITIZEN
Speaker: Aidan and Christine Robinson

As Unitarians, we strive to create a world in which we cooperate as friends, celebrate our differences and make the world a better place. CISV (Children’s International Summer Villages) has also imagined such a world and for the last 65 years, has offered peace education designed for children and youth to help them become informed, responsible and active global citizens.

Join us to hear Aidan Robinson (with the support of his Mom, Christine) share about his month-long CISV camp adventure in Japan where he lived in the aptly-named “Village” with other 11 year olds from 12 different countries. We’ll also experience one of Aidan’s favourite camp activities together.

Aidan Robinson is a member of the UCG, a grade six student, self-declared “artsy” and is already a wonderful friend. Christine is a HR Executive and proud Mother to Aidan and Liam who believes her more most important job is to raise engaged, open-hearted and open-minded men who can make a difference in the world.
